Kiddies Range

There are so many products available for children yet all of them contain sugar, colourants, flavourants or lactose which are the very things we, as natural practitioners, are trying to get them to stay away from. For this reason we have come up with this kiddies range. It is 100% herbal (raw herbs, not extracts) and comes in a base of vegetable glycerine, colloidal silver and a bit of alcohol. The glycerin is a natural preservative made purely from vegetables and happens to be very sweet, so makes the products taste good. The colloidal silver is also a natural preservative which helps kill fungus and bacteria among its various other uses.

Important things to remember

  • Never give children adult medication in any dosage
  • Never give children under 6 months any medication, natural or conventional without consulting a trained professional or doctor.
  • If you are ever in doubt as to how serious the condition is, rather take the child to a doctor.
  • There is nothing wrong with conventional remedies if used at the appropriate time. When a condition is serious or an antibiotic is needed, natural remedies cannot compare.
  • Alternative medicine should only be tried for a three-day period. If there is no relief from symptoms within that time, expert opinion is needed, with specific treatment under medical supervision. The alternative medicines can still be taken in conjunction with conventional medicines, but with the consent of the specialist.
  • If allergies to any of the remedies occur, discontinue use and seek medical advice.
  • Remember that anything taken in excess causes toxicity.

Coughing

Coughing is a common symptom in children and can be caused by a number of illnesses including croup, bronchitis, pneumonia, whooping cough, post nasal drip or the common cold.

Diarrhoea / Stomach Cramps Diarrhoea refers to the frequent passage of loose or watery unformed stools. As a rough guide it can be said that three or four loose or watery stools a day can be considered as diarrhoea. The disease may be acute or chronic. In most cases you do not want to stop the diarrhoea with the first 2 days as it is the body’s way of eliminating some toxin. If it is suppressed, the toxin remains in the intestines, which will cause other illness. Most often diarrhoea and stomach cramps are related and due to the same possible causes although these causes may result in only one or the other.

Earache and Ear infections An earache can be excruciatingly painful. As the ear, nose and throat are all interconnected, the pain can also spread to these areas and cause much distress. An earache can be sharp, dull, or burning pain. Earache is usually caused by a cold getting out of hand. The ear, nose and throat are intimately connected. Any infection in one area tends to affect the other two to a lesser or greater degree. This is especially so in children. Pain can also occur if one has used a pin or matchstick to clean the ears. An erupting wisdom tooth or a toothache can also cause pain in the ear. Increased irritability or pulling at the ears is often a sign of ear pain in infants. Earache in a child or infant is not always from infection. Other causes include water from bathing, soap or shampoo retention, or ear canal irritation from cotton-tipped swabs. With small babies you can press next to the ear to see if there is pain. The baby will let you know if it hurts. If there is an infection, there will be a fever.

Fever The human body has a normal core temperature of 36 – 37 degrees centigrade. Any variation in this core figure implies that something is amiss. Fever is a protective mechanism of the body’s response to tissue injury. Essentially, fever is a protective mechanism of the body and is actually the beginning of the healing process, carried out by the body’s defence mechanisms, rather than a symptom. It helps mobilise the white blood cells which form a protective screen by the release of antibodies to counter a subsequent attack. Fever generally begins with slight shivering, pain in the head and various parts of the body and exceptional thirst. The flow of urine is scanty. As the fever rises, the pulse and respiration become faster. Finally, there is profuse sweating, a copious flow of concentrated urine, and general relief of symptoms.
Fever could be a symptom of countless conditions so one would have to look for other symptoms too but mostly it is due to either viral or bacterial infection.

Runny nose If the mucous is clear there is normally no need for concern. This can be caused from anything starting with cold weather to the beginning of a common cold. If your child is getting ill, there will be other symptoms too like a sore throat, a fever or coughing. If the mucous is green, it means there is an infection in the sinus and is known as sinusitis. This normally goes along with other symptoms too. Sinusitis refers to an inflammation of the mucous membrane lining the sinuses. It often follows a common cold, influenza, and other general infections. Infecting germs sometimes find their way into these sinuses or chambers on either side, of the nasal passage, leading to sinus trouble. The symptoms of sinusitis are excessive or constant sneezing; a running nose; blockage of one or both nostrils; headaches and pressure around the head, eyes, and face. Sinus headaches are usually felt in the forehead and in the face just below the eyes. The patient may suffer from low grade fever, lack of appetite, and difficulty in breathing. Sinusitis results from the inflammation of the sinus passages and over secretion of mucus by the membranes lining the nose and throat.

Throat infections Any infection or inflammation of the throat will cause pain, which often causes difficulty in swallowing food or speaking. A sore throat is discomfort, pain, or scratchiness in the throat which often makes it painful to swallow. Sore throat refers to the inflammation of the pharynx, or back of the throat. It occurs frequently when a person has a cold or an attack of influenza. This inflammation may also involve the tonsils and adenoids if these have not already been removed. Sometimes a throat pain may feel like a needle pricking at a particular point. This is often because of a pus point or a small abscess waiting to burst. Sore throat is mainly caused by bacteria or a viral infection. Many different kind of ailments can give rise to this condition. In case of an acute sore throat, the patient complains of burning and dryness in the throat followed by chills, fever and some hoarseness or laryngitis. The lymph glands along the sides of the neck may become swollen and tender. The back of the throat may become very red and even covered with a greyish white membrane. The patient may find difficulty in swallowing, especially during the acute stage. There may also be postnasal discharge if the irritation has spread to nasal passages. The patient with sore throat caused by ‘Streptoccal’ germs suffers from high fever and sharp pain with swelling.
